Messiah on the Frigidaire

By: John Culbertson
Directed by: MonaLisa Botts
Produced by: Lou Clyde

Auditions: Nov. 5 at 5:00 PM &
Nov. 6 at 4:00 PM

Synopsis: The small town of Elroy, South Carolina is thrust into the evangelical spotlight when what seems to be the image of Jesus appears on a refrigerator in a trailer park. The discovery by Lou Ann Hightower, her husband Dwayne, and her best friend Betsy, sets into motion a frenzy of conflict, communion and good old fashioned commerce. When the National Investigator turns the appearance into front-page headlines, their trailer park becomes a Mecca for miracle seekers, soul searchers and disciples with a decidedly political agenda. At the urging of the towns business leaders, Betsy pretends to get messages from the appliance-based apparition, and the crowds multiply like loaves and fishes. Through the ordeal, the three undergo an evolution in their relationships with each other, and they are forced to come to grips with their lowly status in the caste system of the rural south. In a region where religion is as much a part of life as grits and cotton fields, God surely moves in mysterious ways.

April 28 - 30 & May 4 - 7  
Midlife the Crisis Musical

Book, Music & Lyrics by:
Bob Walton & Jim Walton
Directed by: Jocelyn Sanders
Produced by: Tiffany Dinsmore

Auditions: Sun, Feb. 26 (2 PM) & Mon, Feb. 27 (7 PM)

Synopsis: With a balanced look at the 'joys' of growing older, through a cast of three men and three women, MID-LIFE! strikes a chord with anyone regardless of age. A series of scenes and sketches poke fun at the frustrations of mammograms, love handles, weekend warriors and proctology exams. The cleverly crafted songs celebrate forgetfulness, reading glasses and menopause, but also touch on the sentimental wisdom that the later years afford us. MID-LIFE! is a hilarious romp with an honest humor about the trials and tribulations of the unavoidable aging process. Welcome to MID-LIFE!

Sept. 22 - 24, 28 - 30 & Oct. 1
